Ada Lovelace

Walking and running are common every day movements which we often take for granted but have you ever thought about why you can’t go faster or what’s changed since you were a toddler?

This talk will cover everything from why you can’t run as fast as a cheetah to whether it’s better to walk more like a horse or more like a hippo.

Dr Zoe Davies is a biomechanics researcher at the Royal Veterinary College, investigating human and animal movement. Zoe studies the physics behind walking, running and jumping to see how nature’s athletes can inspire improvements in rehabilitation practice as well as new robotics and prosthetics.

Do you want to know how climate change is affecting our planet?

Our talk will cover the fundamentals of climate change and provide information on the science, risks and impacts of climate change on humans and other species globally.

We will also talk about the response; key policy commitments by government and key actors, as well as an insight into some of the work by engineers to tackle the challenge.

Regardless of your previous knowledge, we will provide an explanation of what achieving a net zero carbon world means for a range of industries and sectors and the impact we can all have.
